Open Packaging Convention

I’ve recently been working on reading Open Office XML files using Perl, and I’ve made a lot of progress with the implementation of the Open Packaging Convention specification as a Perl module. I think soon I will be releasing a version of it to CPAN. I am not too sure of what the module should be named as of yet. I am thinking possibly Archive::OPC since it is a packaging format (it is actually a ZIP file with a specific file layout).

Many Microsoft formats are using this convention and it is a standard (ISO/IEC 29500:2008 and ECMA-376) for anyone to use if they wish. I know it is used for Open Office XML and XPS.
